I love a good pair of gloves, and I hate losing a good pair of gloves. For that reason, I like having a mix of beater gloves for use in the field. Surplus Grau/Feldgrau wool knit gloves. One size fits most. These look very good and are very similar to standard wehrmacht gloves, but lack sizing stripes inside. I handled garbage bags full of original gloves at one time and these are very close to some variations of original gloves I have encountered. The color varies slightly from pair to pair but all are a nice generic German gray color. I have fairly large man hands and they fit me well and they also seem to fit small ladies hands decently. I am not sure how they managed to engineer a glove with this ability but here it is.
These are surplus military gloves which I have sorted into two grades:
- GRADE 1 gloves are lightly used, some are like new, some have some pilling or small stains but are overall quite decent.
- GRADE 2 gloves are more heavily used, likely have pilling and or more staining and often have some odd color variations in the wool. The discolored wool almost looks like repairs but actually appears to be variations of the wool color going into the knitting machine, as they are too precise and well blended to be repairs. Likely the wool broke or ran out while the glove was being made and they just put in some random wool to finish it off or splice broken wool.
All gloves appear to be solid, and have no holes that I have been able to find, although I did not try on every pair.
